5 Do Not Disturb
Sometimes you don’t want to be reached, like at 3:00 AM on a Monday morning. Luckily, Apple has a handy feature called Do Not Disturb (DND) that allows you to stop receiving calls and alerts. You can manually enable/disable DND using Siri or Control Center, but you can also schedule it and configure how it works under Settings > Do Not Disturb.
- When scheduling Do Not Disturb you choose a start time and an end time for when it should be active.
- In the Do Not Disturb setting you can also choose whether notifications are silenced when your phone is unlocked or not when DND is enabled.
- Additionally, you can specify which contact groups are allowed to call you during Do Not Disturb.
